Ardrossan Masterplan & Community Campus

Scotland

Stallan-Brand have been working with North Ayrshire Council on a new strategic regeneration and development framework for the town of Ardrossan, a location that has in recent times suffered from a disproportionate decline in its industry and prospects.

Central to the proposal is a major new waterfront and harbour expansion around transformational public space. Anchoring the investment is the new Ardrossan Intergenerational Community Campus which we designed to connect with and reclaim a massive former oil refinery site that has blighted the town.

Working with the community and key stakeholders the practice developed an ambitious masterplan that addresses the failing town centre.

The entire west side of the town will be developed around new streets and a square, a mixed use urban neighbourhood where the school takes on the role as an important new civic building offering new health, leisure, and learning facilities.

From a new swimming pool to links with local employers the project promises to improve people's quality of life and opportunity through a design and place led approach.
